Dear Mildred, Ed, Peter and Louis,
Mel was and will always remain a part of our life and that of our children. Your father was a neighbor for a few short years but a friend for a lifetime. We loved him dearly. Fred, Pamela, Julie and I will miss him.

Just returned from Europe to hear the devastating news about Mel. I certainly knew how much and how bravely he suffered but I cannot and will not remember that. Mel and Mildred are our closest. I will forever hold dear the wonderful times we shared. Mel is with me always. Much love to you all. Anita Bender
